About this Cook
I am a happily married stay-at-home mom to my three kids. I love experimenting in the kitchen and watching my family enjoy the fruits of my labor.
My favorite things to cook
I love comfort foods - casseroles, slow cooked meals, and desserts similar to the ones my grandmother used to make.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I adjust my cooking to the seasons. We grill out often in the summer, and enjoy hearty soups and stews in the winter. I also love themes and traditions, especially around the holidays.
My cooking triumphs
I love to entertain and throw dinner parties. I enjoy planning the menu ahead of time and providing a variety of dishes for each course.
My cooking tragedies
Expecting a large crowd for a party, I prepared a huge pot of seafood gumbo the day before. After so much time, effort & money spent on it, I scorched it just before the guest were to arrive and had to throw out the whole batch. My husband made a last minute run to a local seafood restaurant to replace it. To this day, I have never attempted another pot of gumbo.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini
Absolutely delicious!!! I'm giving 5 stars because the only two changes I made were small and per my family's tastes: smoked sausage instead of Italian and omitting the red wine. I'm glad I doubled the recipe! Served with caprese salad and crusty bread for a wonderful, light meal! My only recommendation would be to adjust salt and pepper seasoning at the end because different sausages may be saltier than others.

Easy Chicken Tetrazzini
Very easy and good! Good without changes, but for more flavor, I added some onions & garlic I had sautéed in butter. I also used chicken broth in place of the bouillon cubes/water. A store bought rotisserie chicken made it even easier. I just mixed everything together, including the cheese, put in the greased dish and then sprinkled more cheddar and some parmesan on top. Family loved it!!!

Quinoa and Black Beans
I followed the recipe as written, only reducing the amt of beans to 11/2 cans. It was delicious, however, after I refrigerated it overnight and added avocado tossed in lime juice, it was AMAZING! I plan to make it again, adding both avocado and cherry tomatoes. I highly recommend trying it either way. After everything is tossed together, taste it and adjust salt and pepper as needed. A little more salt made a big difference too. I love this recipe!!!
